out of marin county, that a pretty strong sell and clipping around chinatown, there is some rain going back to oakland, that stretches from hayward, castro valley, dublin, that had a strong sell but the rain has been a cold rain and some looks like it is starting to wind down but there have been reports of snow. cold and unstable air but will be a mix of sun and clouds. tonight look for rapid clearing and really cold. the next system looks to be arriving early saturday and a colder one coming in on saturday. 8:01, what do you have?>>
8:02 am
well i have a couple of things going on. we still have a crash we've been talking about. if you are trying to get to the airport i do not advise you to use 880. a pedestrian was somehow on the freeway and got hit by a car and they are still doing an investigation. people were being allowed to get off the freeway but further down the road they are not letting you one. i want to mention traffic is still slow even though all of the southbound lanes are open. if you are trying to get into san francisco perhaps you are trying to sneak over to sfo, the backup is not severe. you can hang for 15 or 20 minutes and it doesn't look too bad. then on 101 it's a straight shot. this is highway 101 on san jose looking like it's clear, otherwise we have some pretty good conditions in the silicon
8:03 am
valley. the holiday travel rush is in full swing as people head out to spend thanksgiving with their loved ones.>> we are joined live. is it busy? not busy? >> not busy at least right now, earlier it was. we just went through security and you can see the lines. maybe it took 20 minutes, i just asked the woman who came through who said it took her 10 minutes. that's pretty good considering there is supposed to be a 15% increase in passenger traffic. so far, it looks like the majority of departures are on time and people are being very patient. look at some video we took, this is what it looks like-- looked like around 5:00 and this is one of the largest carriers. they offer a lot of employees over time and switching
8:04 am
volunteers from the information booth and placing them strategically around the airport in high traffic areas. they have also brought in more staff including canines to sniff explosives to help the lines go faster and it seems to be working. we spoke to a spokeswoman and here's what she had to say. >> we need travelers to arrive early. their advice is to arrive two hours before domestic, three hours before international and have a parking plan. our parking lot feels quickly on any given day and especially the holidays. if you are bringing gifts leave them unwrapped. aaa reports we should see an increase a number of people partly because lower gas prices. they predict it will be a 9 -year high. back out here we are in a low. the rush was from
8:05 am
5:00 to 7:00 and it is supposed to pick back up at 9:30. it will slow down and then pick up again tonight and expect it to be very busy on sunday and monday with everyone returning from holiday travels. be careful out there on the roads. chains or snow tires required on highway 50 with snow on the ground. several ski resorts are firing up chairlifts and times for the weekend. kirkwood is set to open on saturday and earlier this morning kevin cooper told us what people can expect. mother nature has been treating tahoe very well, it's a nice, what october waking up to about 3 to 5 inches off of

8:08 am
become the new normal. the youtube video uses media clips of recent incidents or officers were targeted and asked where is the outrage? a blog reports that 15 officers have been shot and killed, a 70% increase over last year. officers say that we have adapted to reports of violence and have in a sense, grown numb. >> we are simply asking for the community to speak up. as we've talked about there has been such a break down when the targeting and killing of police officers has become normal. >> they are releasing the video now to spark conversation over the holidays and will be holding a news conference to discuss the issue.
8:09 am
all lives matter and blue lights matter are controversial and we have reached out to the movement and are waiting to hear their response. certainly the whole issue is sparking debate this year. our question of the day is about this story, some have said this is insensitive to the original movement. we want to know what you think of that. we are seeing a lot of responses . all lives, especially the blue ones that protect us matter just as much if not more than others. when was the last one someone in black lives matter rent for danger or gunfire to protect you? again, i will never condone the

little better. >> we've had light conditions but a crash that has been here since 5:45 between whipple and industrial. the crash has been in the clearing stages, some radio traffic is saying they are getting ready to open lanes , they said that a few moments ago so i think they are close but until they do open the lanes northbound traffic will be busy but southbound traffic will also be busy even though none of the southbound lanes were ever blocked. if you are trying to make a flight or get somewhere you need extra time and i will let you know when it does clear. this was backed up for a 30 minute delay and now it's more like 15 minutes once you make it onto the bridge. it's a pretty even shot down to the same in cisco airport.

8:21 am
followed by a colder system on sunday, these will be big snow producers. i would not be surprised, it will sweep through on saturday and watch as the next system barrels in here. if this materializes it will-- some heavy rain on the north coast as well, it looks like it's all coming in for the weekend. 50s and 60s and a lot of 50s in the higher elevations. cold but dry thanksgiving. it looks like off and on rain and a cold system on sunday. may be a dusting of snow by late sunday. >> i would welcome that. is your iphone or ipad crashing? a video that some say is to blame and what you can do to avoid that

around pleasanton. most of the activity was earlier this morning leaving behind some very cold air and tonight there will be two more systems coming in, a very cold on sunday. 50s on the temperatures were very low 60s. >> so you have good news? >> they just said that they need another half-hour to investigate the deadly crash that happened at 5:45. a person was hit by a car and i was trying to figure out if it was associated-- if they were associated with a car or not but we know that a person was hit or killed near industrial. they have shut down the freeway . they let some people who were
8:32 am
